Fresh off a tournament victory at the Barclays Center Classic, the 6-0 Ole Miss Rebels continue their road trip Thursday night as they take on Kansas State in Manhattan (no, not that Manhattan. We're done with the Big Apple
until the NIT) as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. It's still early in the season, but this team might be better than some of us anticipated. While Georgia Tech and Penn State aren't exactly basketball powerhouses, it's nice to be beating teams from major conferences this early in the schedule. The big men have impressed so far, especially Demarco Cox, who grabbed tournament MVP honors over the weekend along with 21 rebounds in the two games.
The 4-3 Wildcats are a two-point favorite, but I'm not really sure why. All three of their losses have come on their home court, including one to Northern Colorado in their season opener. In their one real test against a quality opponent, K-State was run over by Georgetown, 90-63. But they've beaten Long Beach State twice already, so there's that!
Here are the details on how to tune in for the game.
